by Melissa cross posted from her blog Permission To Live This was originally published June of 2011. I’ve also included an excerpt from a post I wrote the year before that. Words can’t fully explain how life-changing it was for me to begin to see my children as people, not sinful rebellious little beings I must force into compliance. Recognizing that how I was parenting was wrong, forced me to acknowledge that how I was parented had harmed me. My desire to parent my children gently, was the fuel that pushed me to get into counseling and get help for the first time. It’s hard to believe it’s been 5 years since I began the journey of Gentle Parenting. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Treating ‘Disrespect’ With More ‘Disrespect’ Is Biblical?

ohreally

by Mary Sunshine and her commenters at her blog Sunshine Mary and the Dragon - Nip Disrespect in the Bud Before it Blooms into the Flower of RebellionCame across this blog on Facebook on one of the NLQ affiliate sites. Struck by how disrespectfully rude some of the ideas for dealing with disrespect from wifes are. Any man that pulls this crap needs to spend a few nights without 'marital affections' sleeping on the sofa. Respect in marriage is a two way street no matter if you believe in God or the Flying Spaghetti Monster or nothing. You cannot get respect from your spouse by disrespecting them back. Life doesn't work that way no matter what the CPM & QF people think. … [Read more...]

marryingrapist

by Vaughn Ohlman from his blog True Love Doesn't Wait - Deal BreakersThis posting involves the reasons that fathers really shouldn't be refusing various courtship/betrothal suitors.

Like everything in the Old Testament it seems to be open to interpretation.  … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Feminism is a Nazi-Like Plot?

obamawhitewomen

by Kelly Crawford from her blog Generation Cedar - Obama's Feminist Remark: It's Not About ChoiceKelly's really on a roll. Not merely content to make fun of an adult child coming to terms with possible parental abuse during homeschooled years now she's tossing about words like 'Hitler' and 'Choice' because of one short sentence uttered by the Commander in Chief, instantly invalidating her argument by the usage of the Nazis. Extremely disrespectful to anyone with Jewish heritage that may have lost family members to the camps. … [Read more...]
